The Orleans Family Health Group
(Drs. Dr. Bennani, Dr. Derrick, Dr. Hillier, Dr. Weka, Dr. Gagnon, Dr. Dauksza and Dr. Mechler.)
Is pleased to inform our rostered patients that the group is now a FHO (Family Health Organization).
What is a FHO? A group of family physicians working together to provide primary car to patients, this includes on evenings and weekends.
We encourage you to schedule regular visits for prescriptions, reassessment of chronic issues and preventive care with your physician.
Patients are strongly encouraged to see their physician before going to a walk-in clinic. In the FHO model of care this has implications for your family physician.
If your physician is unavailable, another physician in the group can see you for the acute or urgent issues.
After hours clinics will be available for all rostered patients for acute conditions.
The hours are as follows:
Monday to Thursday 5pm - 8pm
Saturdays 9am - 1pm
Benefits to FHO enrolled patients:
Same day urgent appointments with your family MD
After hours clinic on evening & weekend clinics for urgent concerns
Hospital emergency room for urgent needs
Patients who are already rostered will be automatically rostered to their physician in the FHO.
If you are not rostered, or have any questions please speak to your physician for clarification of what this means to you.
